Organizations will benefit from enterprise-level visibility enabled by cloud system enhancements and continually updated features

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Hexagon’s PPM division today announced the availability of the EcoSys Enterprise Project Performance (EPP) platform as part of the Intergraph Smart® Cloud offering deployed on Microsoft Azure. Intergraph Smart Cloud is Hexagon’s Software as a Service environment for delivering Intergraph Smart and SmartPlant® applications in a high-performance, secure and reliable fashion. The Smart Cloud Portal provides an easy-to-use interface designed to streamline the management of your cloud environment while offering scalability and flexibility organizations require for today’s distributed workforce.

Deployable on-premises or in the cloud, EcoSys is a comprehensive platform of Enterprise Project Performance solutions that work alongside an ERP system to create a connected framework for strategic planning and project delivery. The platform leverages data and analytics by consolidating point solutions and eliminates data siloes through innovative, cloud-enabled integration with EcoSys Connect.

With the ensuing visibility and process standardization, executives and project professionals efficiently predict and control costs driving project success across their organization. By deploying on Azure, organizations of all sizes and types can take advantage of enterprise-level capabilities with cloud system enhancements and features that remain updated continually.

“Today, organizations are adopting a Cloud First strategy to keep up with rapidly changing demands and shortening IT cycles. It is increasingly expensive to maintain current on premise environments, particularly for smaller organizations,” said Melanie Eakes, Executive Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, Hexagon’s PPM division. “With digital transformation initiatives now accelerating at an unprecedented pace in response to a COVID-19 impacted world, the combination of Microsoft Azure and Hexagon’s EcoSys EPP platform allows organizations across all sectors to dynamically adapt capital plans, re-prioritize and introduce unprecedented agility to cost-effectively keep up with the ever-changing project delivery environment – wherever you are across the globe.”

Dana Barnes, Vice President of US State and Local Government, Microsoft Corp., said, “As project-driven organizations are facing new challenges and limited resources, they are moving critical services to the cloud. These organizations need technologies and partners they can trust to help them adapt and move forward. Hexagon and Microsoft provide the expertise, security and experience needed to transition to the cloud effectively and efficiently.”

The new offering for EPP is currently available to consolidate point solutions and databases, improve performance and visibility, get the most from limited resources, execute the right projects and avoid surprises.
